First and foremost my gratitude to all branch chairs and committee members throughout the country who are currently running their AGM’s, and reflecting on a year of collaboration in the profession and successful events for members. Many of the councillors and I have been able to join in person and online and it is great to see the dedication and enthusiasm from everyone involved.
NZIV council has had a busy start to the year with a governance training session and council meeting held in Wellington in February, we also had the chance to head to the Beehive and talk to Minister Penk (picture below).
Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent survey. Some really clear themes emerging which Council will incorporate into our workstreams where appropriate.
